Relentless Endurance Run
1-2 November 2014

Calling all runners! Welcome to the 3rd Annual Relentless Endurance Run! This timed event challenges the YOU to see how far you can go, and it is a perfect environment in which to do it. Last year's event included participants of 12 different nationalities. Nearly all of the 2013 participants set a personal record, either in the most distance or the fastest time it took to cover a certain distance. Most of them set personal records besting their previous record by 20-30 km!

Why is it called the "Relentless Endurance Run"? Not only does relentless epitomize the attitude that ultra runners must adoptto complete these distances, it is also the name of the organization that Katherine founded. This event is a benefit for RELENTLESS, a non-profit organization dedicated to serve the health needs of abused, exploited, and trafficked people in Thailand and around the world. Katherine is an American pediatrician based in Chiang Mai. Register here.
